The Asian Development Bank (ADB), through resources from the Urban Climate Change Resilience Trust Fund (UCCRTF), was one of the first development partners to offer support for the recovery and reconstruction of Sulawesi in Indonesia after a combination of an earthquake and soil liquefaction left more than 4,000 people dead and more than 100,000 families homeless last September 2018. 

From November 2018 to February 2019, various experts were mobilized to support BAPPENAS, the national development planning agency, in the preparation of the Central Sulawesi Damage and Loss Assessment and the Master Plan of Post-Disaster Recovery and Redevelopment.  

Anchored on the principle of “Build Back Better, Safer, and More Sustainable”, BAPPENAS collaborated with various ministries and local stakeholders in the coordination of activities as well as the drafting of action plans. The experts financed through UCCRTF took advisory roles in the consultation workshops and report writing of five Key Working Groups:  

  1. Development of Disaster Risk Areas 

  2. Rehabilitation of Regional Infrastructures

  3. Socio-cultural and Economic Recovery

  4. Finance and Collaboration, and  

  5. Regulation and Institution

Steps are also being taken to ensure that the Master Plan is implemented effectively. Suprayoga Hadi, primary planner at BAPPENAS, is working closely with other government agencies to cascade the use of the Master Plan, such that it informs upcoming interventions. More recently, Hadi has requested ADB to engage monitoring and evaluation experts who will assist the central government in supervising the redevelopment of various sectors.
